Since you will both enter and depart from Finland from the Helsinki international airport, take some time to explore the city either before or after your trip. Take in some of the architecture by visiting the houses of parliament before heading to Temppeliaukio Kirkko, an underground church. Once you have left the capital and are on your way to the backcountry, there are a number of options from which to choose. The east of Lapland is a particularly popular area due to the presence of the Scandinavian Mountains. While these mountains may not be the highest on the continent, the powder is pristine – rarely touched by other skiers – and the views are second to none. Using a helicopter allows you to head to various different peaks ranging from 600 meters to 1.400 meters in elevation
